What I wore: Blue All Over - The Dainty Squid

What I wore: Blue All Over

Monday, December 19, 2011

the details:
cape -
thrifted / vintage
shirt - target
tooth pin - Rachel O's on etsy
jeans - target
boots - thrifted

So absolutely in love with this cape. I found it mixed in with winter coats at Goodwill a few weeks back. It had little buttons on the sides so that it had these weird makeshift armholes, but they were totally awkward and luckily easy to remove. I love the color, length and hood but my favorite part has to be the tag! I'm not quite sure if it's one of those tags that you get from a craft store and sew in or not but it doesn't even matter, it rules! (Ok, that might be a lie, if someone's cute little old "grammie" made this I'd love it 10000x more, if that's even possible!)
Well, I've gotta run now. I have presents to make, presents to wrap, and some orders to pack up! (PS. Thank you times a million to everyone who purchased or even took a peek at my new vintage shop, Circus Bear Vintage! I'm so so so excited!!)
Hope you all have a fabulous day!

    Daphinitly, I will definitely ship to the Netherlands, sorry it's not set up yet so you can easily purchase, yet but if you'd like an estimate on how much shipping would be just send me a convo on etsy and let me know which items you'd like and I'll send you an estimate! :D

    Jossan, you can see some of my collection right here: http://daintysquid.blogspot.com/2011/01/collector.html
